Kentucky's Aaron Harrison sent his team to the Final Four with a last-second three-pointer, but the players aren't the real winners here. It's the athletic director and coaches that will reap the benefits.
Sure, the players get a chance to play in the Final Four and possibly the championship game. However, thanks to a freshman's shot, coach John Calipari and other Kentucky staff members will receive nice bonuses:

At a time in which many people are pushing for student-athletes to get paid, that's not a good look for the NCAA.
